This is so stupid. Stewart is from Indiana and Ward is from New York. The first high profile NASCAR on track tantrum I remember was Kurt Busch (from California) taunting Jimmy Spencer (from Pennsylvania).

Ward most races in the northeast against other people from the northeast. I first started going to races in the midwest and certainly saw a lot of this behavior there growing up in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Missouri. NASCAR really didn't get near my area until 1994 when they started racing in Indianapolis.

People forget that prior to the 1996 IRL-CART split and NASCAR getting some great coverage on ESPN in the 1990's, it wasn't that popular nationwide. In the midwest it was a niche sport and Indycar was much more popular and followed.

I listened the Cowherd show on Monday.. at least the bit about NASCAR and the Stewart incident. meh..

I was born and bred in the South and currently reside in what you might call the deep south. I love NASCAR and everything about it and I didn't take one ounce of offense from what Cowherd was saying. I didn't put much credence on it either..

Cowherd does this for ratings, he tries to gently stroke some genre's ego.. or in contrast, rub some the wrong way to get them fired up and talking about him and his show..

He is constantly making stuff up or taking a different angle on a story that no one takes because its usually too absurd for anyone else to come up with..

I think you could take the 'getting even angle' or 'eye for an eye' and apply it to just about every sport on the planet and every athlete for that matter... it's not a Southern thing, its a human nature thing.. duh!
